This week I have 2 Inspiring Inkin’ Stampin’ Up! team meetings. On Wednesday we had a shoe box swap and on Saturday we have a full all day training.
Today I’m going to share with you the wonderful projects we made at the shoebox swap, so what exactly is a shoebox swap?
The idea of a swap is for everyone to get together and assemble the “sample card” that is displayed by each swap participant. We set up stations with every one’s Shoe Box Swaps on a table and we make each other’s card and we all go home with a shoebox full of assembled cards!
Each person makes one completed sample card and puts all the materials for 12 (cardstock-pre-cut to size, stamps, inks, markers, punches, embellishments, etc.) used to make more of the same card in a Shoe Box or small box. They have to be demonstrable cards (meaning it would be something you would do in a workshop or class) using at least two accessories and layers.
We all made 7 projects, these 6 lovely cards using wheels, paper piecing, ribbons, craft ink I’ll be stealing lots of these ideas!
Some of the cards had stamped insides too !
This is my card
Now there is one project missing…..it had chocolate in it, but I have been good and not eaten it!
It was Hayley’s Easter treat and she has kindly agreed to share the instructions so my stampers 10′s and Technique clubs it will be your 3D project for this month! It is super cute and of course I will include the chocolate! All my club meetings are in the next 10 days so I’ll share it on my website after that.
Thank you to my wonderful team for a fab evening and I’ll see you all tomorrow.
